Listing for:
Columbia BI Disc Graphophone with Nickel Petal Horn


The Columbia BI was also known as the "Sterling" in trade catalogs.

 


The nickel horn is shiny, clean, and looks near-new.

 


From the side, this talking machine has that great profile.

 


The decal across the front says "Columbia Disc Graphophone"

 


Here, Columbia is very proud of winning awards at the old World Fairs! Those were big events back then!

 


This model is one of the unusual ones in having a turntable dust ring to protect the motor from grit and grime.

 


The reproducer has been rebuilt and plays quite loud.

 


From the rear, note the condition of the original cabinet finish and hardware.

 


That is even the original turntable felt!

 


To top it off, this example has the desirable screw volume control that will mute your record while playing... but why would you want to do that?

 

This Columbia machine was offered to fill the growing need for a moderately priced, robust, disc talking machine in the Columbia line. This example has its original dark oak finish and original mechanism. The factory fiber gear has been replaced for a lifetime of trouble-free operation. The tone arm has its integrated reproducer, and the horn is a nickel morning glory horn. An attractive set up that works well, sounds great, and comes complete with plenty of records and needles. Ready to ship anywhere in the world!
